There are many things in life that are temporary. Some good times and good things don't last. The bad times, too, can change when given enough time. The ups and downs, ebbs and flows are part of living in the world, but they don't need to define us. We can and should be defined by what is to come after this world!
God promises that the troubles we may experience on earth are only temporary. God sent Jesus Christ so we can have peace and hope in a brighter future beyond this world. He has overcome the world and provides us with a path to everlasting life, joy, and peace! Nothing that this world offers, whether joy or pain, can compare to the eternal praising and joy that we will experience with God! So for now, we trust in God's plan, follow His will, and be assured that much greater things are to come!
Be encouraged that what you endure in the world is just for now. A brighter future with God awaits!
Thank You for Your Son, His sacrifice, and the promises of an eternal glory with You. Help me to have peace now as I follow You through this world. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
